Long caption incoming (pls read)👉 We’re done with reading about the Coronavirus. We’re inundated with it. 24 frickin’ 7. But hear me out - I’m hoping this will be a little different.
Tonight, I’m launching a blog post series called 🧐’The C Word’.🧐 It’s going to be the start of a project I’m trying to get off the ground over this challenging period. Whenever something happens that I’m overwhelmed by or that I feel incredibly passionate about, my default to process everything is to just write my thoughts down.
So, this is what I’m doing. Why am I starting ‘The C Word’? I’m starting ‘The C Word’ because of an observation I’ve encountered in every single conversation I’ve had with loved ones during this pandemic: we just can’t stop bloody apologising! Apologising for the way we’re reacting to the pandemic. Apologising for feeling numb, scared, low, upset, angry, downright pissed off - when we feel like we don’t ‘have the right to.’ Apologising for ❗️just being human. ❗️ This is not helping anyone. And it’s about time this damaging narrative stopped.
So, I’m trying to do my bit. I want to speak to ordinary people with ordinary lives in these crazily extraordinary times. I want to rant with you about how you’re feeling. I want to help you process the societal trauma we’re dealing with, as one. I want to cultivate a space where we can, heck, even perhaps bring some ✨light✨ to these dark times. I want to use ‘The C Word’ as a way that YOU can share your story - and not even feel an OUNCE of bad for feeling the way you do. Let’s just rant about how much of a C word the C word really is !! And then, I want us to listen to others’ stories to be able to therefore share comfort, advice and support over the time to come.
I want to hear from YOU. 🙋♀️Please hit the link in my bio to read more about this initiative🙋♀️ and please don’t hesitate to get in touch on DMs or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to share your story. I’ll be sharing the next blog post on Wednesday. Thank you - ❤️stay inside and stay safe.❤️
